Who knows what kind of punch Teofilo could've taken without headgear and with smaller gloves?
Cuba has robbed us all of many possible greats.
Stevenson didn't wear headgear. From all the footage I have seen, coupled by the reports I have read, he was simply the best amateur heavyweight of all time. Couldn't really say if he'd have beaten Foreman in 72 but I've got no doubt he would have made a huge impact on the pro game.
Total shame that he never turned pro but credit for his commitment to his country.
